Here is what I do I will run down step by step. This has worked well this summer, for care and cover up issues. I take a good moisturizer which contains a sunscreen...there are many of these out they will often contain 15sunscreen or higher. I then get a few shades of the mineral make up in powder form. the best one is called Physician's formula. My Rheummy actually told me this one was good. Most pharmacy's will have it. Remember, powder form cover up in a few shades close to yours. The buy little containers for mixing up your own make up :) . Then get the wedges you apply make up with. They are sold in pharmacy and also not very expensive. (as far as the containers-I just use travel soap boxes, which are only 99 cents). Mix up the moisturizer with the shades of powder mineral make up. This works well for many reasons. First, you can get many shades even if you only have two or three shades of powder. I only have two. However, the moisturizer will lighten or darken the shade of the make up. You can also mix two powders together with the misturizer. After you blend it in the container, and apply it, you will see that not only does it give you very good cover up, it is a very light and healthy feel for sensitive skin like ours!!! I will never use any other make up again now that I figured this little trick out.
I hope I gave you some idea. You are still very young.. go for it!!! It works really well and is very healthy... :)
